I'm certainly not saying that slide-to-unlock is not a software patent. In fact, we've been using it as an example of one all along.
And I am only guessing as to what the claims of that patent are. I'd like to know, actually (not enough to read it, though).
But I'm willing to bet, still, that they don't include program listings or identify a particular piece of software, so if one's definition of software patent is a patent on some software, it isn't one of those.
